Look up Harold Dean Trevor, he's in BC, try the BC fly fishing forum he frequents there, does very nice custom work.

Kelly Oikawa in Lethbridge - He is an instructor at the College. Can likely contact him there.

Trevor,

Just saw your post NOW. Did you not have a custom rod built by Chuck Harvey a couple of years ago ? Anyway, if you need a fly rod builder  (who lives in St.Albert) in the future , Chuck is one of the best in the business !!
